2020 / E-LPG WEEK

The primary aim of the Global Technology Conference (GTC) is to showcase the most innovative and original technological ideas and other developments from around the world that can create new opportunities for the LPG industry. It brings the LPG industry together, represented by all its stakeholders, from research entities to academic partners, LPG producing companies to LPG equipment manufacturers, LPG distributors as well as the total LPG supply distribution chain and beyond it.

The preceding Global Technology Conferences that took place in Chicago, Seoul, Madrid, Doha, Bali, London, Miami, Singapore, Florence, Marrakech, Houston, and Amsterdam were extremely successful and included presentations from all corners of the world. Typically, over 200 delegates attend GTC.

GTC2020 will take place as part of e-LPG Week with three sessions on November 3rd, 4th & 5th.

With a wealth of benefits to the winners, this is an opportunity not to be missed for everyone developing innovative technology. The Innovation Awards will be granted to the GTC2020 winners chosen from the papers that will be presented during the e-LPG Week in 2020.

PlasMerica, an American company focused on transforming methane into renewable propane, won the prestigious 2019 Innovation Award at GTC2019 in Amsterdam. The winning paper, ‘Sustainable, renewable propane through energy transformation’ described how this proprietary technology converts methane from a greenhouse gas into renewable LPG, a clean, environmentally sound non-greenhouse gas that helps address climate change.
